Update combo box when scroling through records.

Hi

I have a a form for engineers to input their weekly jobs. This has 2 field, the engineers name and the weekending Date. The weekend Date is a lookup from a Weekending Date Table.

The Subform has a Combo box that looks up all the jobs that the engineer has completed, which comes from a query, and uses a Dlookup to populate the subform.

My problem:

I am trying to GET the Combo to display only records for that weekending on the main form, ie. Between [Forms]![Worksheet]![WeekendingDate] and [Forms]![Worksheet]![Weekending Date] -7

The Main Form is filtered to only display the current and previous weekendings. The combo on the subform seems to pull from the first weekending, but does not update when I go to the next weekending.

Where am I going wrong?

Thanks ED

I have tried Requery in various actions, both on the combo box and the forms, but without success.

Can you post the Row Source of your combo box?

If you can post a sample db, it would be better.

Tried the Current Event but seem to get some form of loop, the screen flashs on the same record for several second.

I am in thethrows of reducing the database to send.
